happy burfday to this beaut @josierobs

a moment’s pause for these fallic cacti

the ‘I go crazy’ vid hit a million views today and I am BUZZED. love to @guylarsen @icoepr @gretaisaac @ciaranobriendop for bringing a spooky vision to life. often people tell me that they found it ‘uncomfortable to watch’ & I like that

the legend responsible for my visuals is collage queen @demiiwhiffin ! demii made the artwork for ‘I go crazy’, ‘between my teeth’ & all the teaser graphics & other bits surrounding the singles. can’t wait for u to see what we’re cooking up right now ⚡️ here are some of her workings for the artwork from last year, feat. a recipe for a bangin curry

my new baby ⚡️⚡️⚡️ love you @fender

just finished this book on a loooong train from glasgow to london. between this book & the film ‘AMY’ I’ve learned more about how the music industry used to be years ago, when I was a kid. like all up&comers I’m forging a career in an industry with infinitely less money & at a time where making long-lasting art feels tougher & tougher.. but I feel so, so lucky to be in control of my identity as an artist & as a person, to use my voice on platforms like this to write my own story. in other words fuck tabloids, fuck the side of the media that treats humans like objects & sucks the life out of beautiful, confident, talented people. ⚡️

thinking bout this year like 📸 : @dommanderson 💄: @kardashoon 👗 : @badglamour

In 2018 I found my voice. I gained a ton of experience in playing live, released some songs I love, recorded some songs I really love, set my plans in motion for 2019, found my dream manager & put together my live band.

I feel so lucky to make music for a living - it’s a dizzy dream. but fuck the highlight reel - this year had some tough moments. 2018 was the year I realised that alongside the obligatory gratitude it’s ok for it to feel shit sometimes, it’s ok to feel frustrated at the pace.
As an artist I have so much to give and I’ve worked hard this year to build my future. whatever happens in 2019, I’m so ready.
who’s with me?

happy NYE. love, OG x
